cowardly scumbags

So my dad was robbed yesterday. :-( He's a retired schoolteacher but keeps pretty active, including going to the health club on a regular basis. Yesterday someone cut off his combination lock and took everything in his locker, including his wallet, credits cards, $150 cash, new cellphone, and keys (keys to the house, car, garage, etc.). Major hassle to replace everything, of course, and he has to replace all his locks. No other locker was touched, so it seems as if he was specifically targeted. Doesn't look hopeful that the person(s) responsible will ever get caught. :-( OTHER NEWS: Jodi and I are going to see Alien Resurrection early tomorrow...I hope it's better than the last one. First Christmas party of the season later in the day. Jeff and I have been invited to about eight xmas parties this holiday season...I'd better dust off my obnoxious flashing xmas light musical party hat. Don't think I'll be doing much Blathering until Monday, so have a great weekend, everyone! (p.s. sadly, I was just kidding about the party hat)
